How to Start an Exercise Program & Stay Physically Fit
Physical fitness should be a priority for any bearded brother that wants to live a more fulfilling life. Living healthier and being more fit correlates to happiness. While eating healthy and getting your fair share of necessary vitamins will make your beard stronger, working out can be the extra pump you need. Routine exercise is great for developing a stronger body and mind. Who doesn’t love a good sweat? Think about it this way. If you enjoy working out in some shape or form, you’ll want to get better at it and be able to last longer. The best way to gain endurance is by fueling yourself with a nutritious diet and staying hydrated. This domino effect of health will translate to all areas of your body – including your beard.
Pump up the VolumeThere’s a few guarantees for any type of workout. You are going to sweat. Your pores open up when you sweat and release from the buildup inside them. Sweat actually purges and cleanses your body of toxins. This can help clear up blemishes and have your beard secreting more natural oils. These skin benefits apply only during moderate sweating. So make sure to towel and wash up still. While you exercise, you’re also increasing your blood flow and transporting oxygen throughout your body faster. Men who exercise more are also less prone to stress and therefore produce less cortisone. This has a direct affect on how luxurious and thick your hair can be.
Steps for Creating a New Fitness LifestyleRome wasn’t built in a day and neither was your beard. It takes hard work and the most important piece of the puzzle – time. 1) Make sure you’re doing this for yourself. Don’t compare your progress or results to others. Get motivated because it’s something you want to do. You’ll learn to love the feeling you get from working out. 2) Ease into it and start small. You wouldn’t start practicing for a marathon by running it all in one day. If you start too fast you’re going to end up sore, injured and dejected. You’ll be defeated before you even start. 3) Keep it fun and interesting. Do different kinds of workouts that you’re interested in. It doesn’t have to be just going to the hamster wheel at the gym and doing the same thing over and over again. 4) Enlist a bearded brother for help. Starting a workout with others is a great way for you to stay motivated and keep you honest. It’s easy for one missed day to turn into a week and then the next thing you know your new workout dreams are over.
